An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

Tra-la. I had the idea of using beads to represent the seeds in the middle of a sunflower a long time ago, but I couldn't get it right in practice. Here's one answer. This is Martha Ess's technique number 3 (see yesterday's post for link). There are beads on the inner picots, and beads on the centre ring. The yellow thread is Milford Satin 2-ply. The brown is Cebelia no. 20 that I dyed myself.
